An exceptional 3/4 bedroom home situated in an elevated position with commanding views towards Silver Howe and Loughrigg. This former “Gentleman's Residence” is set in a secure environment within a remotely operated gate, and sits amongst 3 acres of beautifully kept private gardens and grounds.

The residence was converted in 2005 to provide four properties of true distinction. Prior to its conversion the property had been a highly acclaimed luxury country house hotel, renowned for its elegance. Traditionally built in Lakeland stone, Michael's Nook offers an imposing external appearance. The interior has been substantially upgraded and restored to a high specification with many original features retained, including solid oak parquet flooring and panelling and coving, creating a truly stunning home with accommodation over 4000 sq. ft.

Positioned on the edge of Grasmere, a popular Lake District village, with a generous selection of independent shops and eateries, the village was once home to the famous William Wordsworth and is renowned for its gingerbread. Whilst enjoying a stunning Lake District position with superb scenery, its position on a quiet lane off the A591 gives excellent access to Keswick and Kendal and in turn to the M6 motorway.

This spacious and superbly proportioned accommodation enjoys excellent views across the gardens to the surrounding countryside and Lakeland fells.

This unique home is suited as a main residence, holiday home or a retirement base. The Michael's Nook Management Company deals with almost every eventuality and can truly absorb all the hassle of a large home, giving purchasers the ability to 'lock up and leave'.
